We will also be working with James Gilchrist on 16th German song from David Hatcher’s recent transcription of the Viennese manuscript. It will be an exciting five days with loads of music to rehearse and lots of plans to hatch.18810 poster David Hatcher

Below are a few photos from our very enjoyable visit to St Catharine’s College, Cambridge. We were warmly welcomed by Edward Wickham and his choral scholars, with whom we enjoyed performing Senfl’s Fortuna Virgo prudentissima for both the Nightsongs service and our Kellaway Concert the following evening.
